Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic’s future at the club is suddenly very up in the air.
It looked clear at the start of today even that Pulisic was probably the most likely attacker after Kai Havertz who would definitely stay at Chelsea this window. However, since this afternoon’s news, it looks like he is now one of the most likely attackers to leave.
We first heard reports of Manchester Untied’s interest in the American international, and they reportedly want him on loan.

Further to this, transfer insider Ben Jacobs then put his report out, and he says that Chelsea ARE open to letting Pulisic leave the club this window. As you can see below, he names the Serie A as a potential destination for the young winger, and that it is his USA boss Gregg Berhalter who has advised him to leave in the search of regular game time.
But as reported back in June, I am still told Pulisic is tempted by Serie A should the option present itself. Juventus have expressed some interest but it remains to be seen whether they advance it. Pulisic has spoken to Weston McKennie and would be prepared to move.
